A Brush With Success

The ICC has a budding entrepreneur in the ranks with Michael Sant's painting and decorating business expanding rapidly. If anyone didn’t realise that was his profession just have a look at his van, still not sure what his father is doing after going into semi-retirement! Last year Mike and Rhodesy were disillusioned working for a tyrant of a boss, although they tried to paper over the cracks it was clear they were fed up with work. Mike was at a crossroads last year, many were trying to persuade him to become an after dinner speaker but he decided to set up business on his own. Business is booming and the ICC blogger hopes this trend will continue, well played pal.

Here we can see Lager helping Santy out for the day!

However, off the field he showed poor judgement by presuming the game would be called off due to the poor weather during the week and the fact it was raining in Wakefield! When Macca had not arrived on time, Gup rang to find if he was running late, however Mrs Macca answered the phone to inform Gup that our star wicketkeeper was in IKEA battling to fit an Apselund wardrobe onto his trolley. The ICC were in a spot of bother, after making numerous phone calls to get a player he decided to ring Daws, who gleefully hopped on his bike ( sponsored by to Addingham.
